Animals stuck in one ideology during their lives

People often stick to one political party during their voting lives, although a change during their lives is also seen. Animals, on the other hand are stuck. Evolution from an ichneumon wasp species (there are thousands) to a social wasp is not possible in one lifetime. They are stuck finding mates at random and parasitizing insect larvae of a particular species. Social wasps are colonial and know their work, each being a socialist. Ants and termites are most successful as socialists. The colonies might seem like a monarchy, but the queen is as much stuck in the system as the rest.

Dogs are an odd subspecies, ruling at the top of the food chain in packs in the wild state, but most dogs today serve as slaves and do not have any voting rights.

Capitalism on the whole rules the natural world. Winners survive, losers die. Colonies, social as they may be, compete with other colonies for land and resources as in any capitalist system. The survivors are the more aggressive species, with losers such as sloths eating poor nutrition in some far off niche of nature.

Stunned Product Life Cycle Manager Gets Registration Card

Dallas, TX -- Area man Steve Lawrence, 29, got a shock Friday

when he received a product registration card for a LG Brand DVD-VHS player purchased from Target two years ago. The card was even more mysterious as the warranty on the product is only 90 days. The previous registration card was received by his predecessor in 2007 and is pinned to the bulletin board in the lunch room at the warehouse. Steve receives all recalled and returned products at this warehouse.

Roofer Buys Coffee Machine at Target

Newark, NJ -- Area roofer Isaac Newton, 32, finally got around to buying a new coffee machine after Mr. Coffee failed two weeks ago. "I get in the pick up and get Joe and on the way to the job, I and I stop at the local coffee drive through. Not Starbucks, it's operated by my Jamaican brother Malcolm." But the commute to job sites is sometimes long and difficult. The drive through takes time, what with Malcolm chatting with every customer. "I plan to drink coffee at home again and I will bring Joe his mug to drink in the truck." Isaac thinks the Black and Decker will work. "I am familiar with the name, we have some of their tools, though we use better drills if we need to drill." They apparently do some carpentry on the side.
